Go A-Rod!

I watched portions of the Yankees game today, but since I was reading, I didn’t watch the whole thing. I checked the score late in the game and saw that the Orioles were winning 7-6 in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs, bases loaded and A-Rod up to the plate, so I turned the TV on just in time see A-Rod, on a 1-2 pitch, take a ball deep, into the black seats in center field for a walk off grand slam home run, and his second home run of the game. Yankees win 10-7. It looked to me like A-Rod had tears in his eyes when he crossed the plate. It was awesome!
